#FoodieFriday: Crockpot Burrito Bowl

Happy Friday All!

I think one of my favorite types of food ever is Mexican. I love green chili, enchiladas, and tacos, what can I say? Here is a Mexican style recipe for your crock pot. It’s super easy to make, and great for meal prep!

What You Need:

1 Pound of Chicken Breast

2 Red Bell Peppers

2 Poblanos

1 Can of Whole Corn

1 Can of Black Beans

1 Jar of Sadie’s Not So Hot Salsa

Iceberg Lettuce

What You Do:

I spray my crockpot with PAM just to help with the clean up. Then,  add in the chicken and cover with your favorite salsa.

Next, drain both cans of corn and black beans. Add to the crock pot.

Grab your red bell peppers and poblanos. Wash and chop. Add to your crock pot.

Finally, mix the peppers, beans, and corn with a spoon. Turn the crockpot on high and let cook for 3-4 hours.

#FoodieFriday: Zucchini, Peppers, and Beef

Happy Friday All!

For this Foodie Friday, I wanted to share a low carb dish with a decent amount of protein. I found a beef and “zoodle”recipe on Pinterest and manipulated it by adding in peppers versus just onion and garlic! When I make this dish again, I am going to use 2 packages of Green Giants Zucchini Spirals versus just one. Other than that, I give this recipe a ten out of ten!

FullSizeRender-3.jpgI love simple recipes that contain minimal ingredients and are quick to make. Even with cutting the peppers, it took me about thirty minutes to make a 4 serving dinner. It’s a perfect option if you are hungry and looking for a quick healthy meal or if you have a busy night ahead of you. All you need is 1.2 lbs of 93% lean ground beef, 2 poblano peppers, 2 red bell peppers, and a packet (or two!) of zucchini spirals. (I used PAM to spray my skillet to make the clean up a little easier!)

 

First, you will want to brown the beef on medium to high heat. I seasoned the meat with just salt and pepper. While it was browning, I chopped up the peppers and cooked the zucchini for 5 minutes in the microwave. I then added the peppers, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder to the skillet once the beef was cooked all the way through. Let the peppers and meat continue to cook until the peppers are soft.

Finally, drain your zucchini noodles and toss them in the pan. I merely stirred the “zoodles” in with the meat and peppers and turned off the heat. Add a little more pepper and you have a healthy dinner option!
